Measuring Blood Alcohol Concentration

One of the most important factors in determining whether or not an individual has been operating a vehicle under the influence of alcohol is their calculated blood alcohol concentration. Your blood alcohol concentration (BAC), also known as blood alcohol content, is the concentration of alcohol in an individual’s bloodstream. By better understanding what BAC is and entails, you are better able to protect yourself and those you care about.

Methods for Measuring BAC

Your BAC can be measured in a number of ways. They all entail figuring out the volume of alcohol within a volume of blood, and determining a percentage to represent how much alcohol is present your bloodstream. Some ways to determine an individual’s BAC include the following:

  • Measuring the volume of alcohol per volume of exhaled breath
  • Measuring the mass of alcohol per volume of blood in the body
  • Measuring the mass of alcohol in relation to the mass of the whole body

If you are pulled over and tested for alcohol on your breath, or if you have blood taken in order to determine your BAC, it is important to note that not all tests can accurately determine the amount of alcohol within your bloodstream.
